Community Leaders joined Lin Sing President Kenny Leung in ceremonial unveiling of refurbished sign
Months after a devastating fire gutted a ground floor gift shop there is something to celebrate. The fire which started at the back of the gift shop on March 24 did extensive damage to parts of the Lin Sing Association and apartments directly above the shop. Crews have been working diligently these past months to renovate the charred remains of the commercial and residential units.

The Lin Sing Association sign which had originally hung above its former headquarters on Doyers Street since early 1900s was scorched by the flames and had to be removed for refurbishing.
